Asked by Jun 25, 2015 at 09:17 PM about the 1993 Ford F-150 XLT 4WD LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello just bought a truck 1993 ford
f150 with 116k on it frame and body
is in great shape almost mint. Took a
look at it buy said needs valves make
noise. I started it up hardly any kind of
noise. Started smoking a little in the
instake box. 400 bucks I took it. She
miss fires a little on take off at lower
rpms. Drove it home 30 miles and she
hardly smoked. Looking oil out of the
oil cap pov tube something of sort.
Smoking out of there too. So im just
assuming needs new rings. How hard
is it to tear heads off and bottom end
and replace the rings and rough est
on price? 116k should I replace the
crank bearings also? And whats a
good brand to go with? Any kind of
info would help debating buying a 302
or just some rings and bearings and
gaskets. Moto is stick with your motor  
id be doing all if not majority of the
work I have the tools and skills to do
so.

Maybe try tuning it up first? Replace plugs and wires, distributor cap and rotor, PCV valve and hoses if they are dry and cracked, change the oil and see how it runs then. If it still is smoking, up to you if you want to spend the time tearing it down and rebuilding. Personally for a daily driver, throw a used engine in to keep the truck on the road.

Yea did a lot of research boiled down to rings or pcv valve or a hole in a piston. Almost think pcv because she miss fires a little the guy I bought off of said he just changed plugs and wires and intake filter. And also has different heads on it said didnt misfire before the problem started. Imma try pcv and look into motors for it.

If you can remove and install an engine definitely look for a good remanufactured engine and stick it in. The difference in price from a reman engine and the money you would spend on doing it yourself probably isn't worth the time you would have to invest.
